What is the maximum depth of the plate

The List of deep sea trenches contains 30 deep-sea trenches of the earth (also Deep sea women called) with a depth of at least 6,000 meters.[1] For each trench, the greatest depth, the length of the trench, the ocean in which the trench is located and the continental plates that meet there are given. Six trenches, the Mariana Trench (up to 11,034 meters), the Tongagraben (up to 10,882 meters), the Boningraben (up to 10,554 meters), the Kurilengraben (up to 10,542 meters), the Philippinengraben (up to 10,540 meters) and the Kermadec Trench (up to 10,047 meters) have a depth of more than 10,000 meters; they are all in the western Pacific. Ten other trenches are deeper than 8,000 meters. The longest trench is the Aleutian Trench in the northern Pacific, over 3,000 kilometers in length.

Note: The list can be sorted: by clicking on a column header, the list is sorted according to this column; clicking twice reverses the sorting. Any desired sorting combination can be achieved by clicking two columns in a row.
